Series for adults now rewritten for teens Dec 25, 2004
I have always enjoyed the adult series of Left Behind books. The kids books are just as good. The kids interact with the characters from the adult series, experience the same events, etc. However, since the main characters are teens, these books can appeal to younger readers. So far, the stories haven't had the ups and downs that the adult series has had. The adult series has books that are a lot more boring than others. The kids series seems to be good in every book. These are not for really young kids, but would be appropriate for young teens. I enjoy them and I am an adult.
An Awesome book Apr 2, 2004
"Left Behind" is about the bible prophecy of the `Coming of the Lord' that leaves the world in chaos. The book is an idea how it might actually be like for people who did not believe and are `left behind' after the disappearances of God's loyal subjects he brings to his side. The book is number seven in the series titled "Busted." The story starts with Vickie who has been found out by Carpathia High, her high school about her Christian activities. They didn't have enough evidence that she was distributing the Underground, a Christian newspaper, but they still convicted her anyway. So they sent her to a detention center where she meets some new friends and then was adopted by the Stein family. This situation is not one a good one and she finally gets help to escape. She is recaptured when she returns to the school she attended. She finds out some news about things she didn't think were true. Judd visits Israel with his pastor searching for something. Things happen when they arrive back but soon they are all brought back together. Vickie is sent back to the detention center she once left but knowing she has even more people out there caring for her. To me, all the characters are my favorite. But I will choose only one, Judd is my favorite, because he takes on the responsibility of an adult, even though he is just a teenager All of the other characters respect him, even though they have their problems at times. They think of Judd as a father figure.
I recommend this book to all. Whoever is interested in hearing a story of the end of days on earth I think you should buy the series. I plan on reading the book to the end. To tell you the truth I picked this book just because my teacher wanted us to read a book, but when I started reading I immediately got into it. Now I will buy all the books to see what will happen.
More apocalyptic teen soap opera Nov 15, 2003
"Busted!", by Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, is #7 in their "Left Behind: The Kids" series of novels. Grounded in evangelical/fundamentalist Christian theology, the book continues the story of a group of young people living in an apocalyptic near future. The book's heroes continue their resistance mission while world leader Nicolae Carpathia continues to consolidate his new world order.
"Busted!" shows some of the flaws of the other books in the series. The dialogue is stiff and corny; many characters and scenes seem a bit forced. A significant theme of this story is the conversion of Jews to fundamentalist Christianity. I found the tone of the Jewish-related material in the book to be patronizing and paternalistic. Still, the story held my interest and did contain some intriguing elements. In some ways, it's like a good old fashioned dystopian sci-fi tale.
Busted-a great new series! Oct 11, 2003
The Young Trib Force has had amazing success with "The Underground" but, when Vicki's caught, they must make a decision of whether to continue printing the criminal newspaper. With Vicki sent to a detention center, the three guys work with Mark and John. Also, a new believer joins the group, while one appears that they should have known all along. Vicki moves in with a foster family, and discovers the secrets they have tried so hard to hide. Meanwhile, Judd travels with Bruce and discovers the miracle of the two witnesses at the Wailing Wall. This book brings a lot of more character's in, and is wonderfully written. I loved this book, and there's a great twist that no one could ever guess!
The Young Trib Force Faces Pressure May 12, 2003
This seventh installment in the Left Behind Kids series finds Vicki and Judd attempting escape as school authorities pursue them relentlessly. At the end of book 6, Vicki was the one caught by the authorities. At the beginning of this seventh book, Vicki makes one last desperate attempt to escape and Judd Thompson Jr, the leader of the Young Tribulation Force, helps her in her attempt. However Vicki is captured and taken to a juvenile detention center, where she finds herself facing persecution.
Meanwhile, the other three post-Rapture teens face more troubles, along with two new friends, John and Mark. As they struggle to spread the Truth behind the global vanishings and warn people of the coming global judgments foretold in Scripture, the noose tightens at Nicolae High and the kids find themselves facing the pressure that threatens to keep the kids from sticking together as a team. They also seek to find out who the insider at the school who is helping them is. In the midst of their troubles, Old Testament prophecies are coming true all around them. Nicolae Carpathia, the one who the kids found to be the Antichrist back in book 4, signs a peace treaty with the nation of Israel, thus signalling the beginning of the seven most chaotic and perilous years mankind will ever see. By the time book 7 comes to its end, Carpathia has established a global regime and gains total control of Earth, decieving the people of the world into believing that he is the world savior, thus fulfilling Revelation chapter 6:1-2. Will the kids stay alive?
Busted is without a doubt one of the best installments in the series. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, and it ends with a cliffhanger, as do all the books so far, and makes you eager to read the next book in this series about a group of post-Rapture Christians who struggle to survive in a quickly-dying world. 5 stars.
